Let's all work together to create something bigger for tomorrow ✨✋🏽 Our final day with @carpegapyear at #WAVESLobitos has been bittersweet. We finished up our community mural and had our final surf lessons followed by a beautiful sunset. What a magical week its been! Thanks for visiting friends! See you next semester. #surftraveldonedifferent
Day 4 with @carpegapyear! The Carpe students are getting to know the local kids of Lobitos through our community programs. This day they joined in on our Club de Amigos to color and create sealife animals out of trash. So much fun exchanging stories and practicing Spanish with the little ones. #surftraveldonedifferent
Day 3 with @carpegapyear // Today our students participated in a massive beach clean up collecting over 8 bags of trash. We mostly found small plastic bits, plastic bags, water bottles, and utensils. During the cleanup we discussed the impacts humans have on our coastlines and waterways and ways to help. The biggest way YOU can make a difference is to get out there and take action! Organise a clean up in your community, limit your plastic intake, or simply raise awareness. TOGETHER, we can clean up our planet! #surftraveldonedifferent
Yesterday was Day 1 of @carpegapyear visit to #WAVESLobitos! We started the day with a morning swim, Dia de los Muertos celebrations, a ceviche lunch, a tour of Lobitos, and of course, the sunset!
Follow along on our story to see what the week has in store for this amazing group of students! #SurfTravelDoneDifferent
